Movie Summary

Director:
Diane English
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG-13
The Women is a pro-feminist film directed, produced and written by Dianne English. It is an adaptation of the 1936 play by Clare Booth Luce. Like in the play, the plot centers on a group of socialite women and their struggle for power and independence from men. Mary Haines (Meg Ryan) is living comfortably in a wealthy Connecticut town with her Wall Street financier husband and their 11 year-old daughter. Her dream is shattered one day when she is getting a manicure. The manicurist (Debi Mazar) tells her that there is a rumor circulating about Mary's husband having an affair with a perfume girl at the local Fifth Avenue store. Mary's mother takes the news rather well, telling her daughter to keep quiet and enjoy the money. Mary refuses to listen. She first confronts the perfume girl and then her husband, asking for a divorce. Her friends help her move into a new apartment and support her through the divorce, but not all of them are as nice as they appear.moreless
